Are you anxiously awaiting tonight’s WWE Royal Rumble like I am? Are you stuck inside with several inches of snow (22 to be exact) outside like I am? If so, here’s a look at my Top 10 favorites for tonight’s event and a key card for each that you may want to add to your collection.
It’s been rumored for a few weeks now that TNA’s former golden boy has signed with WWE and may make his debut as early as tonight’s Royal Rumble. Will he win? I doubt it as debuting superstars aren’t usually deemed “WWE ready” initially. He’s a fan favorite that will get a huge crowd reaction if he shows up tonight but don’t count on him being the last man remaining.
Reigns is the WWE World Heavyweight Champion going into tonight’s event but he’s also the #1 entrant giving him the most difficult hill to climb. Plenty of #1’s have won it all but The McMahons are definitely going to try their best to prevent that from happening.
He’s probably the favorite to win it all tonight and he should be. But, after The Wyatt Family attacked him on Monday, will he lose focus and be distracted by them once again allowing himself to be eliminated?
Let’s face it. This pick is wishful thinking on my part as he’s just not in the title picture at the moment. However, I’d love to see him make his WWE main roster debut later tonight!
Daniel Bryan has been off of WWE television for quite awhile now waiting to be cleared by WWE’s doctors. But, I have seen a couple rumors floating around out there that he was cleared earlier this week. Were they true? Nobody knows for sure. But, if he makes his return tonight, he is automatically a top favorite to win.
Triple H has to be considered a lock to return tonight. But, it remains to be seen if he’ll be a Rumble entrant or just an outside distraction to get revenge on Roman Reigns and help eliminate him.
The Undertaker is always a potential return for the Royal Rumble and thus year is no different. You know he’ll play s big factor in this year’s Wrestlemania as it could be his last. Expect Taker to show up tonight or tomorrow on Raw at the latest. Either way, enjoy the ride!
While there’s a good chance he’ll make his main roster debut tonight, don’t expect him to win. He’s an outside favorite but I would expect The Balor Club after Wrestlemania if he doesn’t show up tonight.
Consider him a favorite only if his Family eliminates Brock Lesnar as that seems to be where his Wrestlemania story is heading.
This man should be WWE World Heavyweight Chsmpion very soon! I just don’t know if tonight is his night. If he loses to Dean Ambrose I would expect his chances of winning being higher than if he beats Ambrose. Remember last year’s Wrestlemania when Seth Rollins lost to Randy Orton then cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase during the Reigns/Lesnar match? Will history repeat itself? It’s very possible.
